Sheltered housing information

Amenity housing, sheltered housing and very sheltered housing all have special adaptations which make them suitable for older people to continue to live full and independent lives in their own homes for as long as possible. Which of these types of housing would best suit you depends on your age and your health.

Sheltered housing is designed for people of pensionable age. Sheltered housing is usually in grouped developments, most of which have a common area for residents to meet and socialise, and other facilities such as a laundry. Sheltered developments are provided with a Senior Personal Carer service and a 24 hour call system for emergencies.

If you, or a member of your family, currently reside within a sheltered housing complex, please contact your onsite Bon Accord carer who will be able to assist you.
